I can see you need to erase the configuration on the 4500. The commands below are the required to erase the configuration 
and the VLAN database.

Erase the configuration
write erase
reload

Erase VLAN database on 4000/4500
erase cat4000_flash:

Erase the configuration using CatOS
clear config all 



Once you save the configuration on the Active supervisor it is going to synchronize the startup configuration with the stand-by supervisor. We don't need extra
steps for this. If you want to keep the Active supervisor as active after the reboot we can reseat the 
other supervisor after finish the reboot in order to move the active state to the other one. Check the link below :-

Hi,
